  1. Not necessarily - and that's the problem..................... 😎
  2. I'm not suggesting anything - merely stating that money 'earned in this way often has unpleasant side effects, some prostitution mob that got sent down recently were using cattle prods & tasers on the girls to 'encourage' them to work- I don't find that acceptable, ymmv.............. 😎
  3. The side issue (which no-one wants to consider) is where any 'profit' from this stuff ends up. Leaving aside the HMRC interest, a lot of online money funds drugs, prostitution, terrorist activity and all sorts of other stuff that you wouldn't think was ok. ....just sayin'....... 😎
  4. I used to be in the gaming machine business - this is illegal, end of - Facebook is stuffed with this stuff and the 'operators' never seem to get pulled - maybe it's too much like hard work for the Authorities? 😎
  5. Last gig I did in Reading was about 1972 (!) it was a useless place then, I'm guessing it's got worse......... 😎
  6. Anyone that dealt direct with RS used to be regarded as a professional user 😎
  7. Lead-core solder is still on EBay.......... 😎
  8. Takamine tan 16 c guitar in a brown takamine hard case, a L R Baggs Pre Amp, three SM 58 microphone; BETA 58 microphone. Anyone with information should call police on 101 quoting CR-094218-19 Stolen from van in the Preston area of Paignton overnight on Thursday (17 Oct) Any help would be appreciated !
  9. If you missed this on Beeb 4 last night, it's on I Player, for once, a good look at the genre.......... 😎
  10. Others on here know far more about mixers than me, but Behringer seem well thought of- as for foh speakers, I'd look at Barefaced (natch) and Crown amps - light & loud........ 😎
  11. Plug in away from the main hall - kitchen cooker outlets are great, usually 15a rating...........I stopped doing gigs at places that I couldn't get round these show killers many years before I retired. 😎
  12. Some peeps (not I, obv) would get it sent as a present............ 😎
  13. Copydex liberally applied to a patch layer of old net curtain - probably last forever - I did this on both sides of the cone on a 15" Tannoy & overdrove it for another five years........... 😎
  14. Spend 500+ quid on gitar - 770+ on decent amp system, 8k+ on estate car - clear about 40quid a night.......... ....you do the math........... 😎
  15. Maybe I'm old (maybe?) but I'm not seeing much of a problem with that, given a couple of minutes I could come up with stuff that made that look positively Disneyesque.............. 😎
  16. Many years ago I dig a regular gig with half my amp stack on standby until I actually walked on to work - at that point the sound went from moderately loud to full chat.............my stage guy just threw the switches......... 😎
  17. Then, of course, we can be mortally offended by Country Joe (Fixin' to die rag) Bobby Darin (Mack the knife) At this rate we'll be back to Pearl Carr & Teddy Johnson strangling Sing little birdie...... 😎
  18. And the first BBC colour tv show was ? .......... The Black & White Minstrels ............ (you really couldn't make it up) 😎
  19. Aah, wrong song - I was remembering the row in America, never mind, whatever........... 😎
  20. Umm - as distasteful as you may find this, the 'age of consent' in the UK is 16 (& Ringo Starr did, imo, a fantastic job on this.........) 😎
  21. You're verging dangerously close to Skanks territory.......... 😎
